VICE’s The New Kings of Kong checks in on the champs

Everyone loves a good rivalry

“When I play a game, it’s not really for fun — it’s to kick the shit out of this game.”

And with that, we have our “villain” in the Donkey Kong high score rivalry between the mild-mannered current record holder Dr. Hank Chien and the outspoken bodybuilder Vincent Lemay, who has the third highest score. Motherboard did a short piece about the competition between the two at The Kong Off 3 in Denver, Colorado.

If you enjoyed 2007’s The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, this isn’t that, really, but you’ll probably still want to check it out regardless. Short, sweet, and to the point.
